I really like these Horatio Alger books
And, like the prior book, Ragged Dick, it is most delightfully read by Alys Attewater - who never even says her name! And then in chapter 15 the reader switches to Barry Eads who is also a good reader but AA is my favorite. It takes place in pre-civil war NYC, and like in RD I like the views it offers of old New York, including Chinatown before it was Chinatown. And I like the way all the loose ends resolve themselves. Excellent!
